I have mentioned many times that I love giving my boys special notes and I made this one for them. I plan on leaving it on their place mat.
I love using White on White. The look is just so clean. I embossed my background and then for my tag I stamped my sentiment and then embossed my gold stars. Finally I added some yellow and white twine.
Hello Oddies, welcome to Day 1 of our Hol-ODD-Day Hop!
We Odd Girls have joined together for a fun event for EVERYONE - not just because you get to hop, but because you get to PARTICIPATE and share your own holiday creations. So glad you've joined us for our 3rd annual Hol-ODD-Day Hop!
We mixed things up a bit to bring you a nice variety of holiday projects that we hope will inspire you. You can comment on all of the blogs, participate by linking your own below (to be eligible to win, be sure you link to us in your post), and comment throughout the event on other people's links as well! And there will be PRESENTS! The hop goes from now through Friday, December 12th, and we'll be announcing 3 winners next Wednesday, December 17th, so you have plenty of time to comment between now and then! Our Hol-ODD-Day Hop link party will close at midnight on Friday the 12th.
Today, all of the Odd Girls have projects to share for the big event, so you can visit their blogs to see all the action happening. Here's the hop list for our awesome team:
I used the Core Basics Kraft smooth cardstock and then used my Spectrum Noir markers on the mouse and then the Pencils on the other two. I love to use my Spectrum Noir pencils on the Kraft. It has a great look.
Hope you have fun with this Hol-Odd-hop! See you tomorrow. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
My baby turns 6 today! So in honor of him I made this birthday card for him. I got to have so much fun stampping and coloring with this card. I just wish I could see him open it becuase I am leaving it on his placemat in the morning. ( I leave the house at 5:45 am and am not home in the morning to see they boys but I alsways leave little notes and cards for them so that they know I am thinking of them!)
I made a video for you on how I made this card.
I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge #94. (It has been a long time since I have been able to play and was so excited about this challenge.) This was just perfect timing with my little one's birthday! See the above link for all the fun details!
Thanks so much for joining me today. I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
I got really excited when they told us that Core'dinations was teaming up with May Arts for a fun giveaway! Be sure to stop by the Core'dinations Blog to enter to WIN!
For my project I made a hostess gift bag and tag for the holidays. I love to bring a little gift and have it wrapped really pretty. For my bag I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection. I broke out my Sillhouette to make the beautiful leaves and then got busy with my Lawn Fawn stamps! To finsih the project off I added some yummy twine and ribbon from May Arts!

Thanks so much for joining me. I will be back next week with a new project. See you then,
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner? I mean it is just two short week from now. Wow! Where is the time going????? It seems like life has just been so crazy and busy that my days are just going so fast! Anyone else feeling the same way??
Core'dinations gave us an assignment to create a card for Thanksgiving. I wanted to create a clean and simple card that packed a good punch of yummy Core'dinations cardstock. I broke out my Chocolate Box paper. I scored and sanded the edges, and die cut a leaf using my Silhouette. I then backed the negative space with the Tim Holtz Shattered Core paper. I stamped my sentiment using the reverse side of the Chocolate Box using a Simon Says Stamp clear stamp. Finally I added some enamel hearts.
I have a video to share with you
Thanks so much for joining me today. I will be back soon with a fun gift bag and tag using Core'dintions and May Arts! Have a wonderful and crafty day.
The fun continues with another new stamp set. This one is Garden Gwen. The set consists of a portrait of Gwen and then this totally fun frame. It also contains 2 sentiments. I think this is by far my favorite thank you sentiment!
For my card I embossed my cardstock and then added some of the yummy woodgrain paper from the Sunshine Sorbet paper collection from Some Odd Girl. I then added my new frame and sentiment. Finally I added some of the beautiful sequins.
I have a video to share with you.
Be sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl Shop to see all the new goodies. Thanks so much for stopping by. I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
Today is an exciting day becuase Some Odd Girl is realeasing the new clear stamp sets. Today is Wink Mae. The set comes with Mae, and awesome frame and sentiments. For my project I chose to highlight the setiment and frame. I just love the fram and the sentiment is to die for! I used the new Sunshine Sorbet Some Odd Girl paper collection along with the new stamps and Yes, I broke out some flowers!
I have a video for you on how this card came together!
I have a really quick card today for you using the brand new digi release from SOG! On this card I use the Loopy Sentiments V2 & V4. I took the two sentiments from the two collections and put them together for a super quick and easy card!

I pulled out my distress inks, mists, awesome stamps from Simon Says Stamp, spectrum noir marker and really went crazy! I had so much fun creating this beautiful card.

For my card I used embossing paste and a Dreamweaver stencil to create the background. I colored my little cutie using my Spectrum Noir markers

I chose the Sweet sentiment as a play on words for the gingerbread theme and because my boys look so sweet here together decorating the gingerbread house. I also used Gingerbread Kaylee stamp set!

Today I have a a new post up over at Some Odd Girl for the weekly inspiration. For this post I made a new layout using the Sunshine Sorbet paper collection and of course, Some Odd Girl clear stamps! What could be a better combo. Right? Awesome Paper and Awesome Stamps!
This is a photo of my little one playing out in the snow. He looked so darn cute. I used the paper to layer underneath the photo and to create some hexagons. I thought that went well with the wood veneer hexagons and then I added some of the matching sequins. All of the these items (paper, wood veneer and sequins) are available in the Some Odd Girl Store!
I have a video for you on how this layout came about!

Some Odd Girl is having a really fun contest that starts today. Do you have a fun idea for a Some Odd Girl digi stamp? If you do you need to enter this really fun contest.
All you need is:
Pose Character (Kaylee, Mae, Gwen, etc) Outfit
If they want to add more to it, that’s great! We want to encourage you to be creative with your entries. You could do a photo collage of the elements, or a link list, or a picture list or even a pic of yourself in your fav outfit and write out the rest.
We will be picking 1 winner per platform (Facebook, Instagram etc.) . Each winner will guest on the day their digi is released (so they will get it early, create something and we’ll post it on our blog) and a $20 GC to our shop. How cool is that!!!!!
Here is my fun idea. I LOVE tennis and I would love to see Kaylee dressed in a cute tennis outfit with her favorite racket ready to hit the courts.
This is me in my favorite outfit- pink Nike skirt with a grey top. I am ready to hit the courts!
So what is your fun idea? Head on over to the Some Odd Girl Blog and read about all the details! It is going to be so much fun!
Just popping in to let you know that I am taking the rest of the month off from blogging! I am extremely burnt out! I am still crafting up a storm but I need a break from the blog world for awhile. Just way too many things going on and I don't have any time to sit in front of the computer. Crafting is still VERY important to me and I have tons of new stuff to show off in October! I may pop in to let you know of fun things happening over at Some Odd Girl!
So I will see you in October! Have a great end to September! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
I am here today to bring you a cute and fun idea for teacher or someone special. It is the cutest little gift box that is just perfect for small gifts.
I used a Silhouette cut file to make the box using some Core'dinations cardstock. I then cut the front and side panels using the Sunshine Sorbet paper from Some Odd Girl. I used the awesome woodgrain pattern paper. I then used some Some Odd Girl stamps to decorate the front of the box (Fruit Salad & Teacher Mae ). I colored my apple using my Spectrum Noir markers. Finally I added some yummy twine and attached the cute little tag.
Here is a quick video on how this came together.
Thanks so much for joining me today. I will be back soon with a new project. See you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day.
Tuesday means it is time for the new digi release from Some Odd Girl and today I have THE cutest little puppy EVER!
For my card I used a shape form my Silhouette library and turned it into a card. I then colored my little puppy with my spectrum noir markers and cut him out and pop dotted him onto the card. Next I used a Some Odd Girl clear stamp and pop dotted it on as well.
Here is a video I made showing how this card came about.

I hinted about a sneak peek yesterday and here it is! I am showing off today the BRAND NEW paper collection Sunshine Sorbet AND the brand new clear stamp release Yeti! I am in LOVE with this little guy! He is so cute!
I am in LOVE with this little guy! He is so cute! I colored him with my Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. ( I will have a coloring video using these pencils on this cute little Yeti next week!) For my paper I matted my pattern paper in navy blue which really made the yellow and other colors pop! This paper is really awesome. I will be showing more of it next week. I think you are going to LOVE it.
Next week the paper collection AND the stamps will be available in the Some Odd Girl Shop.
